Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen will be given an ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrulator) as a new precaution to help prevent further cardiac events.

This according to the DBU (the Danish Football Association), who confirmed in a tweet this morning that the 29-year-old would receive this treatment.

The Dane has spent the last several days in the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen after collapsing with what was determined to be a cardiac arrhythmia during Denmark’s EURO 2020 opener against Finland on Saturday.

During that time he has underwent numerous tests, which have uncovered the underlying problems which led to the near-tragedy at the Parken in Copenhagen on Saturday.

Analyzing the results of tests, Eriksen’s doctors have determined that the ICD will be the safest course of action for the 29-year-old.

It is not known how this will affect his playing career, but for now all involved in the Nerazzurri and Danish national team setups will respect Eriksen’s privacy with the hope of reconnecting on a personal level when possible, with the midfielder’s safety being the only priority.

The tweet reads:

“National team doctor Morten Bosens has been in contact with the cardiac specialist at Rigshospitalet and Christian Eriksen and this is the latest.”

“After Christian has been through numerous heart examinations it has been decided that he should have an ICD (heart starter). This device is necessary after a cardiac attack due to rhythm disturbances.”

“Christian has accepted the solution and the plan has moreover been confirmed by specialists nationally and internationally who all recommend the same treatment.”

“We encourage everyone to give Christian and his family peace and privacy the following time.”
